Scottsdale and Gilbert Life Time locations participate in Commitment Day with a New Year’s Day 5K followed by a weekend of educational and entertaining events.
What are you doing New Year’s day? Rather than nursing a hangover, commit to getting out and getting active! Life Time Fitness is making it fun by opening its doors to the community and hosting one million workouts across the country during its Commitment Day Festival (January 1), Fun Run (January 1-4) and Indoor Triathlon Workout (January 4).
Set to take place at 113 Life Time destinations from coast to coast, including two in Arizona (Scottsdale and Glendale), the festival will feature healthy family events all weekend long. In addition, 52 Life Time destinations will host the annual Commitment Day 5K Fun Run on January 1 for all ages and abilities as participants join together in a symbolic commitment to lead healthier, more active lives in 2015. Plus, in partnership with IRONMAN, on January 4, 79 Life Time destinations will host an inaugural Indoor Triathlon Workout to encourage and educate people of all athletic abilities on the sport of triathlon.
The Commitment Festival is open to both members and non-members and will kick off on January 1, 2015 with the Commitment Day 5K Fun Run taking place in 52 cities in 24 states. Commitment Day Festival offers a variety of educational and entertaining events, including:
- Daily Fit Talks and Workout Workshops – The FIT Talks series is designed to educate and empower participants with approachable, relevant, and simple life-changing actions, such as breaking up with sugar, eating fat to burn fat, and why counting calories won’t lead to long term results. Participants may also attend a Workout Workshop in which they’ll have an opportunity to learn and burn with a new workout, such as ViPR, LT Connect, Strength and Flexibility, Battling Ropes, Upper Body Strength & Tone and more.
- Jan. 2: Alpha Madness – The Life Time Alpha program is designed for anyone looking to lose weight or enhance performance. Participants will start with a Get Connected Seminar to introduce heart rate training via LT Connect, which helps them train smarter not harder. From there, they’ll have the opportunity to compete against themselves in an Alpha Workout focused on functional movements suitable for all ages and fitness abilities.
- Jan. 3: Yoga Commitment Jam – Yogis and beginners alike will de-stress from the holidays and kick off a commitment to yoga with 90-minute Vinyasa Flow class suitable for all ages and abilities.
- Jan. 4: Indoor Triathlon Hour powered by Life Time Tri and IRONMAN– Redefine your 2015: commit to tri. If you’ve ever wanted to try a tri, this is where to start.
